1999 gmc sierra rear brake trouble


1999 gmc sierra 4x4 truck

6000 miles ago I replaced the rotors and pads on the rear I replaced them again this past weekend and made sure everything was greased up. When I used a c-clamp to push the caliper back in it seemed resistive. Drove the truck and wheels get hot. Any Ideas are welcome.

Most likely a the caliper needs to be replaced. Could be more than that though, maybe brake hose. open brake bleeder and make sure you are getting brake fluid from the hose.

2000 GMC Sierra 3500 4x4 standard cab 5.7 litre single rear wheels,Please tell me How do get the front rotors off? Any help would be much appreciated.


The brake calipers will need to come off which is the hardest part for most. Have a " C" Clamp with an 8 inch throat is needed so you can press the brake pads inward to release pressure from the rotor. Upon removing the caliper the saddle if so equipt has to be unbolted from the steering knuckle. Two bolts hold this saddle on. You may not have one depending on the design caliper this truck has. Once these parts are off the rotor will come off

Rear brake pads wear out every 30000 miles on 2002 3/4 tod hd , rotors are pitted bad


That's to be expected and is completely normal.

Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.

Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.

check the axle end play. if there is significant axle in-out motion, this will cause excessive inside pad wear. it will also cause the caliper to bind under breaking conditions, yet slide freely when there is no stress applied

Hi joelalthomas, if they replaced your brakes and you never even made it home they had better warranty the work and as for the "it was a common problem on 2002-2004 trucks" well check for Chevy recalls as this is a safety issue that would have been corrected at no expense to the vehicle owner, do a little more research my friend and let me know what happens, I will check around a little as well in the meantime I would find a new garage.Do not pay any more as you said your brakes worked fine until they worked on it good luck to you As for your 4x4 did you look at the left side when you did the right side? and were they bled off properly? you can visually check to see if the calipers are functioning

Brakes just dont seem right.. dealer said they put on new front rotors when i 1st complained.. but only got alittle better, brakes still seem like i have to apply with alot of force, when with my wifes...


If the vehicle has rear drum brakes, I would check the adjustment on them, if they are too loose, this will cause the brake pedal to go down low.
